Low Water Pressure

Birmingham Low Water Pressure Repair

We Have Solutions to Your Low Water Pressure Issues

Low water pressure is annoying and extremely inconvenient. While some fixes are relatively easy, the condition can be a symptom of a larger problem. Even if your utility company delivers water at a suitable pressure, that doesn’t guarantee it will be sufficient in your home. Low water pressure can turn simple tasks like washing clothes or taking a shower into miserable experiences. If you notice your water or shower pressure is low and dropping, call one of the water pressure experts at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.

What Are the Causes of Low Water Pressure?

Low water pressure can be caused by many different things. Some of the more common problems are relatively easy to repair, including clogged aerator screens, worn faucets, and partially closed valves. Sometimes you won’t be able to fix water pressure problems easily, and you’ll need the services of a professional plumber.

Common causes of low water pressure include the following:

  • Clogged fixtures
  • Closed or partially closed water valves
  • Clogged water pipes
  • Faulty pressure regulators
  • Corroded pipes
  • Inadequate main water supply line

Debris Build-Up & Corrosion

If you have hard water, your pipes are always battling the effects of corrosion. Over time, the interior diameter of a corroded pipe grows smaller, which limits the amount of water that can pass through it. Eventually, this will decrease the pressure in your home. If you have older galvanized pipes and low water pressure, you may want to consider repiping your home to replace your outdated plumbing system.

Shared Main Water

A shared water supply is commonly found in multifamily housing. Two or more families using water from one incoming supply pipe can cause pressure fluctuations or low water pressure when several fixtures are open at the same time. This condition is most noticeable during peak hours of use, especially in the morning when most people shower.
